      In the year 2000 a CEO of an AIDS drug manufacturer, Conrad Bernstein, finalizes the purchase of an artificial intelligence company, Cali AI. He tours the firm and falls victim to an industrial accident. They cryogenically freeze him and Bernstein inadvertently awakens in the year 2049. In the future he encounters an Eastern mystic, Yogi Profel Yogananda, who acts as his unwanted mentor. Through the sage, the CEO learns the World Trade Center blew up and a terrorist group smuggled nuclear weapons into the USA and Europe, causing a nuclear holocaust. Bernstein also learns the USA was destroyed by an asteroid and America is now considered a collection of islands. In this new epoch, Bernsteinís first wife acts as his love interest. Our hero escapes this place and goes back to change the future. The mysticís predictions come true and the CEO becomes a victim to the mysticís final prophecy ó Prescience Rendezvous.
